One Sentence About Me  

Making people smile one pixel at a time :)

Who I Am  

A Little About Me

Currently a second year student at UC San Diego double majoring in Communication and Cognitive Science (specializing in Design and Interaction), I am a budding product designer who loves how art and problem solving go hand-in-hand in the world of design. Whether it be in product, visual, UI/UX, or graphic design, I strive to take designs to the next level pixel by pixel.

Interesting Factoid

I'm currently trying my best to convince this white cat I meet on my walks to come home with me.
